running a DNS server (http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/run-server.html).
tinydns-conf creates a service directory D that runs tinydns(8). The
name D must start with a slash and must not contain any special
characters. Normally D is /etc/tinydns.
You can run the service under svscan(8) by using the update-service(8)
program on Debian GNU/Linux
update-service --add D
or by creating a symbolic link in the svscan(8) directory (normally
/service or /etc/service), e.g.:
ln -s D /service
The service will start within five seconds, and will be restarted upon
reboot. You can use svc(8) to control the service.
tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns(8) to chroot to D/root and to run
under the uid and gid of acct. The name acct must not contain any
tinydns-conf creates D/root/Makefile to run tinydns-data(8) upon
tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns(8) to listen for UDP packets on port
53 of ip, and to send outgoing packets from ip.
tinydns-conf creates an automatically rotated log directory in
D/log/main. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding
multilog(8) processes run under the uid and gid of logacct. The name
logacct must not contain any special characters.
